Our Church

We are a Southern Baptist Church in rural southeast Iowa.  Our membership is made up of people from our community and surrounding communities.  We are a multi-generational church.  We uphold the Baptists Faith and Message and believe "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." - 2 Timothy 3:16-17  We practice the church ordinances of baptism by immersion and communion.

Our sanctuary can seat 300-350 people with overflow in our fellowship hall and second level classroom.  Our average worship attendance on Sunday is 110.  We have a Deacon's ministry assisting the pastor with  the needs of the community/congregation.  The business of the church is led by a church council made up of committee member heads and officers.
